Well, why should we restrict ourselves in the first place?The more you try to control your most basic needs, the more you will see yourself as trapped in your relationship.We’ve all heard the saying, “You want what you can't have.” The major reason we like others while we're in relationships is because we subconsciously believe we can't talk, flirt or hang out with someone we’re attracted to.
If you can't hold on to your independence in a relationship, don't settle down in any kind of commitment.
Sometimes, flirting with other people will make you appreciate your current partner more.
But, it is quite possible (and absolutely normal) you will feel a minor connection with someone else down the road.
When I say, “flirting” with others, I don't mean picking up a bunch of people and getting their phone numbers.
This situation is not necessarily easy to handle, but there are methods you can use to turn dating into a relationship.
